Remember the Alamo! Remember the Maine! Remember Pearl Harbor! Remember September 11th. I sometimes wonder how many actually remember the first two. They were once the calls of our nation much like Remember Pearl Harbor has been for a generation. Remember. What are we supposed to remember?
Pearl Harbor is one of the most important things for all people to experience; it is important to remember. We need to remember how hateful and dishonest we can be as nations to one another. We need to remember that war always comes with a high price. We need to remember that being invaded, being attacked, helped us to rally together — much as it did to the people of Viet Nam, Iraq and so many other places.
We need to remember that the only hope is the love of God, and that Jesus Christ came to show us how to overcome evil and not give in to warfare.
